    Wonderful player! Observe his non-traditional pick hold in the graphic! I’ve been lucky to have had the opportunity to participate in workshops, masterclasses and as a player in an orchestra he conducted. One important thing I took away from these sessions was the variation of pick holds he uses. His thoughts and comments on pick holds and overall mandolin ergonometric was quite memorable and inspiring.

    Interesting video from composer David Bruce about the premiere of one of the pieces from the album.

    David Bruce has a great sense of humor as well as good insights into the process.
